8 Steps to Apply the Apple a Day Principle to Your Life

Turn Around Your Dead Man’s Goals

The New Year is a great time for making new goals that you want to focus on in 2018. But change is difficult. It’s the beginning of February, and many of us have already given up on our New Year’s Resolutions. To give us the best chance to succeed in our...

Nice Job… So Far

At different points in my life, I have used P90x to get into shape. Even though I mostly do CrossFit now, I still enjoy P90x for a change of pace. One of the things I love most about P90x is that Tony Horton provides an endless supply of cheesy sayings. I have done...
The Importance of Taking Initiative

The Importance of Taking Initiative

Today I want to talk to you about the importance of taking initiative when working toward your goals. I remember one evening I was on my train ride home from work. The train was busier than usual, and it was hard to find a seat. I wondered why there were so many...
